>> steve: reportedly no drugs at home. that's why he was able to send us an e-mail picture for us. congratulations. >> brian: and make sure you watch the show tomorrow. among our great guests, curt bush. that's susan boyle. bill: here we go. a fox news exclusive. former cia director david petraeus who resigned friday after acknowledging the extramarital affair with his biographer has agreed to testify voluntarily before the house and senate intelligence committee. prior to his resignation he had been scheduled to testify about the scandal in benghazi, libya where the ambassador and three other americans were killed. that was initially blamed on a spontaneous demonstration over a film, a mob. he has contacted the cia as well as committees in the house and senate to offer his testimony meanwhile, new questions on whether or not general petraeus told everything that he knew on benghazi the first time he sat down for testimony. that would have been three days after the attack on the 14th of september. so good morning. a lot to chew on. we'll connect all the dots. i'm bill hemmer. good
(cheers) >> usa! usa! usa! >> throughout this campaign, using every argument he could think of, president obama has tried to convince you that these last four years have been a success. and so his plan for the next four years is to take all the ideas from his first term, the stimulus, the borrowing, obamacare, all the rest and do them all over again. he calls that plan forward. i call it forewarned. the same course we have been on will not lead to a better destination. the same path means 20 trillion in debt. it means crippling unemployment continuing. it means stagnant take home pay and depressed home values and a devastated military. and unless we change course, we could be looking at another recession. in the closing argument just this last week, the president asked his supporters to vote for revenge. for revenge. instead, i ask the american people to vote for love of country. (cheers). together we must lead america to a better place. now, we're only two days away from a fresh start, two days away from the new beginning. my conviction that better days are ahead are not based
vehicle used to misinform the american people during this crisis. bill: now we move to today. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge live on the hill. good morning there. what do we expect to get from general petraeus today behind closed doors now, catherine. >> reporter: thank you, bill. the former cia director arrived here on capitol hill an hour and 20 minutes ago and a source close to the general told fox news the expectation he will tell the house intelligence and senate intelligence committees he too believed it was terrorism within 20 four hours of the attack. active link to al qaeda and ansar al-sharia to wanted to establish a islamic state in eastern libya. the source told fox news they expect the general to bring with him the original talking points put together by the cia. those talking points had input from other intelligence agencies as well as the office of the director of national intelligence and that petraeus apparently did not know they would be provided to u.n. ambassador susan rice. he does not know who the author of the final version was and these t
and inappropriate. we have just learned that two u.s. officials tell fox that it was more than just flirting. they describe them as sexually split and equivalent of phone sex over e-mail. he denies it but something is not adding up. we heard from the father of broadwell. this is something else entirely and the truth will come out. there is a lot more than meets the eye. if we are to believe the story we are told all of this started because paula broadwell sent anonymous e-mails to kelly. it's like cat ties stuff, phrases who do you think you are? you parade around the base. you need to take it down a notch. none of them reportedly referenced violence but the f.b.i. launched a full investigation. now one of the most decorated military leaders in our history has been removed as the head the c.i.a. essentially he has been silenced days before he was scheduled to testify before congressional investigators. even more concerning, all of this unfolded before the election but we, you, were not told about until president obama was declared victorious. speaking of the white house they are peddling the
